After designing some of the most innovative racing frames the FPV market has ever seen we are now set on a course for freestyle nirvana. The Smooth Operator is the culmination of years of experience in the world of FPV frame design. Why is this bird better than anything else on the market currently? Its simple. Many aspects of this design were inspired by YOU. The pilots. We took a completely different path with the entire design process and asked the people who fly freestyle what they want to see in a frame. We produced detailed design review videos and posted them on Youtube. These videos covered Smooth Operator frame revisions 4, rev 5, and rev 6. Every single pilot comment was reviewed and seriously considered for implementation into the final design, along with our own internal team pilot input. After weeks of work flight testing, crashing, and fine tuning the design we finally have a finished product. A detailed design review video is coming where the designer will cover all the major aspects of what makes this freestyle rig so special and so different than anything else on the market.
